Summit Meeting of Alexander von Humboldt Professors: Recommendations on AI
Seven Recommendations on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the German Federal Government
At the summit meeting of Alexander von Humboldt Professors specializing in the field of AI, held in Aachen, 19 experts came together to formulate seven key recommendations for the German government. Professors Wil van der Aalst and Holger Hoos, both esteemed members of the panel, also belong to JARA-CSD.
The Alexander von Humboldt Professorship is the most valuable German research award and is granted exclusively to top researchers who are world leaders in their field. The Alexander von Humboldt Professorships for Artificial Intelligence form an essential part of the German government's AI strategy. For this reason, “we hope for a positive response to and support of our recommendations,” says Humboldt Professor Holger Hoos, one of the directors of the AI Center at RWTH Aachen University.
The proposals range from quite general recommendations on financial support for AI research in Germany to very specific proposals such as the development of AI computing and data centers as a critical factor for long-term AI-based innovation. Merely to build on existing infrastructure is not enough, the experts say.
In addition to Prof. Hoos, JARA-CSD scientist Prof. Will van der Aalst is also a member of the committee, which consists of a total of 19 experts.
The list of the seven recommendations and a list of all participating Humboldt Professors are available on the RWTH Aachen University website: https://www.rwth-aachen.de/cms/root/die-rwth/Aktuell/Pressemitteilungen/Oktober/~bdvawz/KI-Starkes-Signal-aus-Aachen-nach-Berli/?lidx=1
